Just to be clear, there are no converters that convert 5amp to 15amp. The ones that are available in the market only help with letting users fit a larger plug in a smaller socket. So this is not something you will use to connect your AC or heater or geyser in a smaller plug. That will just not work. However, there are times when regular 5 amp gadgets come with a 15amp plug leaving the user perplexed as to how to use it. Before you go returning the gadget, check the label or the plug itself to see the power consumption required. If it says 5amps then you are in luck as there are a bunch of adapters available in the market to help you. These adapters are labelled as 15amp to 5amp converters, and essentially help fit a larger plug in a smaller socket. Some of these adapters also accommodate international plug points adding extra value to them. Here are some options available on Amazon.
There are some devices that come with a two-pin plug setup and there is just a hole where the third pin should be. It is annoying getting these devices into a plug point, especially if you have a safety shield in the sockets that lifts when the third pin touches it. You usually use a pen or something to ply this plug into the socket and it can get quite annoying. In such situations, you can use the Gadget-Wagon 5 / 15 amps. It helps not only get the plug into the socket but also helps with holding it securely ensuring smooth function.
This 5amp to 15amp converter comes with a host of features. It can accommodate a 3-pin setup as well as a 2-pin plug for easy use. It claims to be made of durable material to last long.

This is useful if you aren't sure whether there is a problem with the gadget or the power socket. The device has a plug and play setup and can also house international plug points making it easy for you to use the gadgets you have from abroad.
